IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Commercial CDN 2019 Vendor Assessment

By: Ghassan AbdoResearch VP, WW Telecom , Virtualization & CDN, Melissa Fremeijer-HoltzResearch Manager, European Enterprise Infrastructure and Communications


This IDC study presents assessment of eight CDN vendors that provide commercial CDN services on a global basis. The assessment is based on their current capabilities and future strategies for delivering CDN services. This is the first comprehensive analysis by IDC on this mature but transforming market, and it provides insights to enterprises deciding on choices of CDN vendors.

"Enterprises' expectations of CDN providers are evolving as they undergo the journey to digital transformation. Traditional metrics in terms of performance and availability, while still important, are not enough for the choice of a CDN provider. On the technology front, enterprises are expecting an innovation agenda that incorporates virtualization, DevOps, open APIs, and programmability at the edge. On the commercial side, enterprises are demanding a commercial framework that is transparent, easy to understand, and embodies co-innovation to enable a richer customer experience. CDN providers that align their technological and commercial road maps with the digital transformation journey of the enterprise can become the future leaders." — Ghassan Abdo, research vice president, Worldwide Telecommunications
